Abstract:

INCOMPLETE BUT SUBSTANTIAL RESULTS INDICATE THE SUCCESSFUL FORMULATION OF A GROUP OF COMPOSITE ADVANCED HALONS (CAH) DESIGNED TO COUPLE THE HIGHEST POSSIBLE SAFETY IN USE WITH EFFICIENCY IN OPERATION. THE CAH WOULD UTILIZE WATER OR A PROPRIETARY CARRIER AND/OR ADDITIVES WHICH ENABLE THE HALON LIQUID TO BE CONTAINED AT LOW PRESSURE AND TO HAVE A RELATIVELY HIGH BOILING POINT. THESE PHYSICAL CHARACTERISTICS RESULT IN A HEAVIER THAN AIR GASEOUS FIRE SUPPRESSION AGENT HAVING AN EFFECTIVE THROW OF SIXTY TO MORE FEET WITH INCREASE CONCENTRATION AT THE BURN-SITE SUFFICIENT TO PREVENT RE-IGNITION AND RESIST DISSIPATION BY WIND. FOR THROW RANGES APPROXIMATING 1000 FEET, AN ALTERNATE APPROACH CONSISTING OF THE MECHANICAL DELIVERY OF CAH FILLED PROJECTILES IS FEASIBLE. TOXICITY IS TOO LOW TO REPRESENT A HEALTH HAZARD.
